Improvised Singing

The improvised singing workshop will focus on teaching how to incorporate songs in to an improvised musical set. The class will get a 101 style breakdown of stereotypical songs found in musicals and help layout a formula that can help improvisors understand themes and ideas that will be helpful when making up songs on the spot. There will also be technique study on how to set yourself up for success when planning what you want to say in an individual song.
**We will not be working on singing techniques, so it is recommended that anyone taking the class has a background in singing as well as improv.
Workshop is Saturday, April 30, 2-4pm
